Port Edward proof of LNG potential: Premier Clark

Premier Christy Clark once again pointed to Port Edward as proof the potential growth that comes with developing LNG.

In her speech to wrap-up the Union of British Columbia Municipalities on Sept. 26, Premier Christy Clark once again pointed to Port Edward as proof the potential growth that comes with developing the liquefied natural gas industry.

“Talking with ‘Dancing’ Dave MacDonald, there is a house for sale in that community for $445,000. That is the most expensive house for sale in the history of Port Edward as a village in the province,” she said.

The home referenced is a three-bedroom, two storey house on Spruce Ave. listed on the Multiple Listing Service. The only other Port Edward residence listed is a $242,000 home on Evergreen Drive.

With housing prices rising on the North Coast, Clark said this may be just the beginning.

“The opportunity we have with LNG is immeasurably large, if we can get there … and we are beginning to see just the tip of the iceberg,” she said.”

“Resource development needs to be done righ and it needs to be done sustainably, but it does need to be done.”
